Nicola Heath | Qualified Personal & Professional Coach
Unfulfilled? Stressed? No time to think? Overwhelmed? Feeling stuck? Not taking care of yourself properly? Not sure what you want out of life?
Life is too short to spend it unhappy!
I offer bespoke coaching to clients searching for clarity, confidence, balance and success in their personal and professional lives.
I work with my clients to understand what is important to them and support them to achieve it. I will work with you on having the right energy and balance to be successful in your relationships (as a leader, co-worker, parent, partner, friend, family member) and/or in your business/career.
Having spent the majority of my career in the automotive industry, successfully navigating my way into senior management through roles in IT, Sales & Marketing and HR, I am now a qualified coach. After 15 years climbing the corporate ladder, juggling a family and managing a chronic disease I decided to transform the way I lead my life. I committed to put myself first – my health, my needs and my dreams so I can be the best coach, parent, wife, sister, daughter and friend I can be. I am passionate about supporting my coaching clients to be fulfilled in their careers and home lives.
For me, being fulfilled means earning a living doing the work I love, helping people, whilst being able to spend quality time with the people that are important in my life.
I’m interested in what fulfilled means for you!

Areas of coaching I deal with
I offer an initial 15 minute, free, no obligation call to ensure that we will work well together and that coaching is right for what you want to achieve (even if you don’t know what you want to achieve just yet!).
The first full coaching session is a discovery call to help me get to know you better, further understand what you want to achieve and what is holding you back. Depending on your previous experience of coaching and the goals you have in mind I will tailor some short pre-coaching exercises to be carried out in advance which will maximise the effectiveness of that first session.
Typically, subsequent sessions will focus on achieving the steps towards reaching your goals, motivation and keeping momentum, overcoming obstacles, reducing stress and celebrating success.
I recommend a minimum of three sessions and the usual number of sessions carried out is between six and nine. Fortnightly coaching works well for most clients however it depends very much on your goals, their timeframes and your availability – I am therefore happy to discuss what works best for you.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and cost £85 per session.
What my clients say
"Nicola has helped me understand that it is ok to look after myself and take time for me and that what I want and need is important too! As a full-time working Mum with two children I feel like I am constantly juggling and feeling guilty, taking any time for me has always been a big struggle. However I have realised that looking after me and managing my time better and creating a better work life balance, that my children and my husband have benefitted from this too!"
"I found my coaching sessions with Nicola extremely helpful. I had never had the chance to talk so in-depth about my goals and have someone help me to organise my thoughts to achieve them. My business is looking much more organised and I'm working on improving my health from understanding what changes I need in my daily life."
MR, East Sussex
"I went into my coaching sessions not knowing where I wanted to go in my career and when I wanted to achieve this by. I go away from our coaching sessions with a set of goals for the next five years of my life, a way of reaching those goals and a sense of belief that I can achieve whatever I put my mind to. Nicola is an excellent coach and I would highly recommend her sessions to anyone that is looking to set meaningful goals in either their personal or professional life."
